As a librarian in a public library in Oyo State Nigeria,during our visits to various rural public schools,m Io discovered that the teachers are not well equipped to teach the students. I was able to communicate with them personally and was astonished to know that they cannot operate the smart phones they possess neither are aware of any educational resources to support learning and teaching. I was able to connect few of them for selective dissemination of information on materials useful for teaching and proficiency training in basic computing.m this is due to lack of funds from office but it is my pleasure to reach most of them in the rural areas ey Oke Ogun area of the state where exposure ICT is very poor. I am therefore in need of equipment to reach public school teachers. For example laptops, internetleaning and teaching materials relevant. Also ideas on how to go about the project. Would be appreciated.

Hello Sikemi, I can relate very well to the situation you described in this post and I will be glad to help you put off some of the hurdles you are going through for your project. I can share with you a few educational resources that will make your project easier and connect you with other active librarians within Nigeria that are eager and working towards this kind of project.

Then, you will be able to take it up from there.

Please reach out to me on fashdamilola@gmail.com

Hearty cheers,

Fasoranti.

Hello Sikemi!

 

I don't know if these resources will meet your needs, but here are some digital literacy learning materials. 

I hope you find them useful! Would love to hear an update on how you are doing with this effort. 

 

Best wishes, 

Sarah

Sarah, thanks for the resources. Unfortunately, I couldn't go on with the project due to the strike action by labour union in Oyo State. I am actually planning to embark on another one involving young girls in my community. These girls are forced to stay away from the school due to the strike action by their teachers and most parents couldn't afford to enroll them in after-school coaching classes. I am trying to set up a ICT/vocational training for them to make them busy, not becoming vulnerable to peer pressure and sexual harassment in the neighborhood before school resumption. As well as empower them take to using ICT in future.

Thank you.
